Michael Perchick joined KVUE as a news reporter in 2015. Before coming to Austin, he honed his craft at WAPT, the ABC affiliate in Jackson, Miss. for the past two years as a news/sports reporter and producer. At WAPT, Michael was a part of the AP Award Winning “Blitz 16,” which won Best Sportscast in Mississippi.
His split role at WAPT allowed him to work a wide array of topics, from the highly contested U.S. Senate race between incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran and state Sen. Chris McDaniel, to covering SEC Media Days and the Senior Bowl.
As a University of Miami graduate, Michael prefers a slightly different shade of orange than the Longhorns, but looks forward to working in a football-crazed state.
Originally from New Jersey, Michael is excited to work in one of the fastest-growing areas in the country, and tell stories that matter to viewers throughout Central Texas.
